Junction onto High Dyke from Great Ponton

Reported via desktop in the Visibility at junction or bend category by Carol Ramsey at 13:16, Mon 31 July 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 466682.

At this junction when looking to the right the hedge in the adjacent field is so large that it obscures vision and you just cannot see what is coming from this direction. The High Dyke is an extremely fast road and there is nowhere to go if you pull out thinking the road is clear. It is only a matter of time before an accident will happen.

  • Has the right area been looked at? I use this road every day and I have a small 4 by 4 and I cannot see the road to the right and it is obscured by a large natural hedge which has grown too high. The road has a natural curve here and the hedge obscures the road there is no corner at this point of the road. Please check again this junction remains very dangerous.
